I am an alcoholic in recovery and needed that bit of extra help with my personal life which the usual AA meetings didn’t really give me. Mark gave me the one to one counselling I needed and will possibly need more of in the future. Thank you Mark for your help and understanding. I would recommend your service to anyone needing counselling. More...
“ I started seeing Mark last April after what I refer to as my meltdown after everything just overwhelmed me.
I have a wonderful life, job, beautiful wife and sons but it still didn’t stop it. I had no confidence, low self-esteem and serious trust issues. I didn’t know if it was depression, bipolar or what.
After a few sessions with Mark it became apparent that I had built a fantastic image of my chilhood which turned out to be my way of blocking the reality out. As we have journeyed over the months, thanks to Marks amazing understanding and sensitivity we have untangled a huge amount of my past. I am not saying I am totally recovered as it’s a long journey but I do have a much better understanding of myself now and realise I wasn’t the person I thought I was. I feel more confident and have higher self-esteem than before but I still do fall down every now and then. I would recommend Mark to anyone without hesitation. He is patient, understanding and has an amazing way of making you connect things you would never have imagined about yourself. I know I will be seeing Mark for a while yet as I know I still need to, but without his help I can’t imagine where I would be now “. (P.S. Stansted Abbotts). More...
"I have been with Mark for 6 months now, when I met Mark, I was in a destructive cycle of drug
abuse, depression and self-loathing. I had recently separated from my wife and was self-medicating
on cocaine, I had lost all direction in life and didn’t see a reprieve from the depression and
emptiness. I went to Mark expecting nothing but I can honestly say I have gained everything. Over
the months, Mark has given me the tools and ability to re-direct my life and regain everything I had
lost and more. Ironically it was all within my power but without Marks’ counselling and knowledge, I
never would have found it. I am back with my wife, clean of drugs and for the first time in a long
optimistic of what the future holds. If anyone is reading this and unsure of seeing Mark, my advice to
you would be, if something in your life is causing you distress, then speak to Mark at Ataraxia
because through personal experience he helped me save my family and life". (D.K. Hoddesdon). More...
